I first saw "shero" on a button at a march for...I don't even remember which cause anymore, but the button said, "Barbara Jordan Is My Shero." I'll spare you my rant on why a "heroine" is not a female hero, but I'm very glad to hear Mr. Beauchamp use "shero"!

I didn't even know the FBI had a civil rights division! Does it date back to the '60s, or when?

Really appreciated Keith's peice on Emmet Till and looking forward to this one...Point should nevertheless be made that these "justice delayed" efforts focus on crimes that were REPORTED, leaving unaddressed countless such crimes that never saw the light of day...Also, unfortunately, the "dogs" are not sleeping. Effects of such crimes and that terrorist climate live on.
